I have an '06 Honda
Civic. The most common places where the code is found is on the left side of
the glove box, in the trunk somewhere along the gasket or underneath where the
speakers are, under the fuse box panel, under the ashtray and sometimes under center
console lid. I happen to find my in the left side of the glove compartment. The
first five digits are the code and under that, you should see and 11 digit code
which is your radio serial. So once you have the code if you haven't already,
turn on the radio. It will ask you for the code and you punch it in using the
number on the buttons you use to change your radio stations. As you punch in
numbers "CODE" will start to fill in. Just like
the asterisks used in passwords. If you punch it incorrectly, it will
say "error 1" or something to that effect. Do not push anything else,
just start over by punch in the first number of the code and then the rest. Be
careful, if you attempt too many times, the radio will lock itself and you will
need to leave the radio on for an hour for it to reset itself. When successful
done, the radio will turn back on to the last station you were last on. Hope
When I try to open the radio it says enter the code I have the code but all the botons doesn't work, how do I reset?I put one time the code and was working then after 10 min.was block...what shud I do?! thankyou

Look in the owners manual, or associated manuals, there should be either a card with the radio access code, or it may be written in the "Audio system" handbook.
If that isn't available, you'll have to go to the dealer and have them retrieve the radio code. They should be able to look it up by the VIN.
If the radio has been changed or replaced, the radio will have to be removed and the serial number off of the radio will be required for the dealer to find the associated access code.
The access codes are associated with the serial number of the unit, NOT by the VIN number, or vehicle.
Try to locate the unique code number that will unlock the theft-protected audio system on your 2003 Honda Civic. It probably was imprinted on an anti-theft identification card that you should have received when you acquired the car. The code was printed on a document that came with your owner's manual packet
If you do not have the code, you will need to track down the audio system's serial number. In the case of the 2003 Honda Civic, finding the serial number may require seeking assistance from a Honda dealer. The dealer should be able to determine the audio system's special code number so you can reset the radio. With some newer Honda Civic models, the serial number can be retrieved electronically from the radio.
If you are able to locate the serial number of your 2003 Honda Civic's audio system without a dealer's assistance, you can obtain the special code by going online to the Honda Web site. You must first provide specific information to prove you own the car. For instance, you will need the Civic's vehicle identification number, or VIN, and the audio system's serial number.
When you know what the audio system's special code number is, use the preset buttons on the car radio to punch in the digits. This should reset the audio system, enabling you to resume using the radio and the CD player.
